Come, everyone who thirsts,

come to the waters;

and he who has no money,

Come, buy wine and milk

without money and without price.

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,

and your labor for that which does not satisfy?

Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,

and delight yourselves in rich food.

Incline your ear, and come to me;

hear, that your soul may live.

Christ Jesus,

who, though he was in the form of God,

did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,

by taking the form of a servant,

being born in the likeness of men.

And being found in human form,

he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death,

even death on a cross.

Merciful God,

Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

POSTLUDE – “The Lord’s Prayer” by Sandra McCracken

Our very own Paulo has volunteered to put on a free soccer clinic for the kids of IBC and their friends this fall and see what it might turn into next year!

For the next four Sundays (9/23, 9/30, 10/7, 10/14) after our worship service he will be teaching skills to the kids. Parents and other adults are welcome to come help out or fellowship on the sidelines.

Pack a lunch or grab some tacos and head over to Harrison Park by 1:00 PM. Please bring your own soccer ball if you have one.

It will culminate in a scrimmage held behind The Meeting Place after our next Table Talk on 10/21, which will hopefully turn into a church-wide game!

If you could reply to Paulo at soccer at uicarea dot com with how many kids you’ll be bringing and their ages as soon as possible that will help.

EVERYONE:

We believe in God the Father Almighty,

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic church,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

Amen.

LEADER 1

Oh sing to the Lord a new song;

sing to the Lord, all the earth!

Sing to the Lord, bless his name;

tell of his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous works among all the peoples!

For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;

he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,

but the Lord made the heavens.

Splendor and majesty are before him;

strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

LEADER 2

Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;

bring an offering, and come into his courts!

Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;

tremble before him, all the earth!

EVERYONE

Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!

Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;

he will judge the peoples with equity.”

LEADER 2

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;

let the sea roar, and all that fills it;

let the field exult, and everything in it!

Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy

before the Lord, for he comes,

for he comes to judge the earth.

He will judge the world in righteousness,

and the peoples in his faithfulness.

What a Beautiful Name” by Ben Fielding and Brooke Ligertwood

CONFESSION OF SIN – 1 John 1:5-10

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you,

that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness,

we lie and do not practice the truth.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light,

we have fellowship with one another,

and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

If we say we have not sinned,

we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 John 2:1-3

My little children,

I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin.

But if anyone does sin,

we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

He is the propitiation for our sins,

and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

And by this we know that we have come to know him,

if we keep his commandments.

Beloved, if God so loved us,

we also ought to love one another.
